FetchFind Academy has been the industry-leading training academy since 2008. Our graduates are highly sought after for professional positions throughout the pet industry. Classes are held in-person in Chicago!
A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT THIS UPCOMING SESSION:
Good things do sometimes come to an end (if only to make way for even better things). It is with a heavy, but proud heart that I let you know the final FetchFind Academy Advanced Training program will happen this spring. This will be the last opportunity for you or your employees to take this comprehensive training program in its current form.
What you’ll get:
20 weeks of hands on classroom and hands on learning from Chicago’s top dog training and behavior experts
We’ve added an extra month to the beginning of the program so that even if you haven’t been through our Essentials program, don’t have formal dog training experience, or if it’s been a while since you were in the classroom, you can still be ready to go out and get a position as a professional dog trainer by September 2018.
For business owners who want to add another revenue stream, this is the perfect opportunity to educate your best employee(s) and turn them into dog trainers.
If you’re already a dog trainer, but want to increase your skill level and get valuable continuing education credits, you’ll get 30 CEUs (certified through APDT) and connections throughout the dog training community. Many of our alumni obtained positions at boutique and multi-location training facilities immediately after graduation from Academy, and have gone on to become CPDT-KA and even start their own dog training companies!
Advanced Training Skills
If becoming a professional dog trainer has always been your passion, we offer Advanced Training Skills professional course for pet professionals who would like to advance their careers and become a dog trainer or advance their current dog training skill set. This program is very hands-on and taught by Chicagoland's top trainers and educators. We create simulated situations that face dog professionals today and work through them together. You will learn how to create and execute a training plan, speak with clients easily, and how to identify all types of behavioral issues, including fear, anxiety and aggression.
